Newest LES Resident: Jake Sumner, Son of Sting

The New York Observer brings word that Jake Sumner, the 25-year-old son of Gordon Sumner (aka Sting) and Trudie Styler, has purchased the penthouse of the swanky condo building at 17 Orchard St. for $1.3 million. Apparently, he’s planning to trade up from his place in SoHo. From the report:

Unlike the former Police frontman and sex marathoner, Sumner fils prefers his digs downtown. He just purchased the penthouse at long-stalled 17 Orchard Street, a seven-unit sliver of a condo that came on the market only a month after Lehman collapsed. The original asking price was $1.695 million, but Mr. Sumner–the occasional model is all of 25–paid only $1.27 million.

The two-bedroom home is “the newest to hip Lower East Side living,” according to Shelley O’Keefe’s Corcoran listing. “Located on one of the most known and loved streets on the Lower East Side, 17 Orchard offers the highest standard of modern living.” The 1,316-square-foot spread features two bathrooms and a chef’s kitchen that “will make your friends green with envy when they see your expansive marble counters, custom cabinets, and KitchenAid stainless steel appliances.” There is also a 298-square-foot terrace.
